Life without preschool

My son is a product of preschool. My husband and I both work and our parents are either too far away or they also work and were not able to watch him for us. So, off to school he went. It was crazy expensive, but the costs of him going outweighed the cost of me quitting my job. And, thankfully, he loved it. In preschool he learned most of what his teacher is covering now in Kindergarten.…

Students say that family comes first

I said a lot of dumb things when I was in my 20s. As I am now older and (presumably) wiser, I take comfort in the fact that everyone says dumb things in their 20s. In your 20s you suffer from an optimistic idealistic attitude about...well, everything.



As I have gotten older, I have gotten wiser. Which is…

Working parents are suffering in silence

At 5 pm, I have been working for eight and a half hours. I probably don't even know what time it is. In fact, I am probably in a meeting, since I work for a bicoastal company and it is only 2 pm on the other coast. (That tends to be a popular meeting time.)



By 5:14, I am trying very hard to focus on whatever…

Subject Line: WFH

It usually happens on a Friday or a Monday. I'll be in the office, waiting for my email program to start, and they will start to filter in: The Working From Home messages.



One or two emails that come in with the WFH subject line are common enough: Sick children, sick adult, work being done at the house and…

Back to school means it's time to stress out over homework

In my little corner of the world, school starts next week. And all around me I hear the moms talking about various after school programs and which ones they are avoiding because they don't encourage children to complete their homework first.



And I can hear that they are already stressed out over their…

Making Money While Breastfeeding

In one 24 hour period, I spend approximately 4 of those hours breastfeeding or pumping. That is 28 hours a week- practically a part time job! One day, while using my computer to watch So You Think You Can Dance as I fed my son, I decided to find something better to do with my hours than watch every reality TV show possible. 



I started researching sites that would allow me to make money during those 28 hours a…

Cheers to Change

As a working mother, I have become accustomed to being flexible and making changes. Change is constant and it is not always easy or welcomed. It could be something as simple as a sick child or something drastic like a career change and relocation. With those changes, I always have to take into…

Having a baby in a start-up business = bad timing - maybe?

My thoughts on the subject of having a child in the midst of a hectic time for my business

Honestly, I couldn't cope with the idea, when I found out I was pregnant. The timing was lousy, and originally I didn't intend having more children (I already have e beautiful 11…

Teds Woodworking plans PDF Review

Once you think classic backyard bench, probably your brain will wander to a graphic of some wooden recreation area bench someplace, or one seated outside your preferred cafe. Solid wood benches woodworking plans could be something as easy as two slats with hip and legs to fancier versions just like the S-formed courting bench and another versions just like the Tahawus and in addition gliders and swings. Once you consider the market, there are numerous forms of wood lumber which are used to…

Mom brings home the bacon. (And the milk.)

My son was six weeks old when I returned to work. And I had the same thought every day when I dropped him off at day care:

This is crazy. Why am I working? I should be staying home with him. I mean, my salary covers our healthcare and the cost of his school and some other bills, but I think we could live without it.…

Take the Break That Might Save Your Life

Stress is real.



In 2011, I was diagnosed with central serous retinopathy and the doctors made it very clear to me that it was directly related to how my body processes stress.  



I remember it like it was yesterday.  I sat at my desk…

You might be making your spouse fat

My husband and I both work full time. And there was a long period where we worked in the same company (albeit different departments). And we both worked really long hours.

Taking work stress home

My son loves my office. On the few occasions I've taken him to visit, he received lots of attention from my coworkers, treats, hot chocolate and got to play with the stuff at everyone's desk. He calls my coworkers "his coworkers" and requests to talk to them on the phone sometimes.…

Tips for equality in parenting

Describe the workload involved in being a parent. Are you listing out the physical tasks you help your child with (getting dressed, brushing teeth, reading bedtime stories)? Or are you thinking about the mental workout (worrying about them when they are away at camp, remembering their measurements, sizes and all their friend's names) as well? Did you remember to list all those ancillary chores that keep the household running smoothly…
